I don’t know if you saw my post a few weeks ago about my new favourite past time – colouring in!, but ever since then, I have been trawling Etsy for some gorgeous doodles and colouring booklets by bona fide artists for me to print out and colour in!
I’ve gone to Etsy because I know how many talented artists there are out there and I believe artists deserve payment for their creations, especially if I’m going to print and colour away to my hearts content. I’ve found some fabulous little booklets, patterns and pages.
My favourites seem to be florals but I have been saving patterns and ladies to try at a later date.
The Awesome Colouring Pages & Books:
Ok so my favourite is Number 2.. I love the coloured in version you can see a little peek of.
I don’t know why but every time I see that ‘You Are Strong’ poster, I sing Pat Benetars ‘Love Is A Battle Field’, it may be because my eyes can see ‘are’ and the ending of ‘ong’…. which leads me on to…’we are yooooooung, heart ache to heart ache we stand!’
That will be in my head all day now. I apologise for that ear worm ^_^
Don’t forget to get your essential supplies!
(this is advertised as an Adult Colouring book which made me think there were naughty bits but there aren’t, it’s just for grown-ups. Although there is also a Pin Up version with rude parts available in the store too)
There are 14 pages (each one is 8.5″ x 11″/A4 Size) to colour with a different pretty lady illustration on each page.
Not suitable for under 18’s.
Grab your prismacolor pencils and get colouring! The yellow in this print is so eye catching and I would even love to buy it as a final print without me having to do the work!
3. Printable Quotes Colouring Book from The Shiny Nest.
Do you love colouring for mindfulness?
This book contains 10 motivational/inspirational quotes, Quote #1 to Quote #10 that can be purchased individually too, in my store. These quotes can be purchased individually as well- just look for the yellow previews. Upon purchase, you will receive 1 pdf book containing the 10 coloring pages (in high resolution, without the copyright watermark) via a secure link.

Mandala’s are my favourite things to draw, but honestly, I have no time for that (running two blogs) so these colouring pages are perfect for me to download and print out!
10 Image colouring book for midori by Robin Mead Designs. If you have a Midori Journal then these colouring books are essential! If you haven’t downloaded them yet, what are you doing!?
I LOVE this. SLSLines is possibly my favourite but honestly.. they’re all amazing and they’re all on my list to purchase (I’ve bought two already and working my way through them).
This is a stunning colouring page and even though I prefer to colour, less intricate designs because I’m incredibly impatient, I do love using my Prismacolor pencils!
I draw flowers, alllll of the time! So, I thought it was a genius idea to scan them in and offer them as colouring pages!
I hope you like these! The selections are obviously tailored to what I like but I’m sure you’ll like at least one of them!
Have any of you tried any colouring in as a grown up?
I’ve found that it’s great in the evening for winding down before bed. Stops my mind from racing a million miles an hour when I get into bed. You can see more colouring pages here and some of my favourite colouring tools and supplies here!
P.S – I found a great article if you love colouring things in — How To Colour In
P.P.S – If you have a laser printer or access to a laser printer, you could print these pages on watercolour paper and use watercolour pencils or paint to colour in!
